    Very interesting experience, heartwarming and sad at the same time. The tour was conducted by Eoin. He did a great job because he was courteous, knowledgeable & created a friendly environment. He spoke clearly so that all could hear. We greatly enjoyed it.

    I wouldn't recommend the Jeanie Johnston ship tour with a two year old. There is little space to move around and it is mostly an interesting lecture on how the Captain and crew managed to make 600 crossings without losing a... More
